THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE 21. JESUS AND THE BLIND BEGGAR (John 9:1-23)
By siteadmin in AM Service,Bible Book,John,Luke Herrin,New Testament,Sermons
1. THIS IS ABOUT JESUS
It’s not about the blind man.
2. EVERYONE GOES THROUGH SOME KIND OF TRIAL
The question is: Do you believe your pain can ultimately bring glory to God? There is a special way that God receives glory when people persevere in trials.
3. RESPONSES TO THE MIRACLE
Everyone saw what had happened but they reacted differently:
a) The Pharisees opposed Jesus because of it
b) The man’s parents were cowed into submission
c) The blind man spoke fearlessly of Jesus
These three groups and their responses are still with us today. The question is: which group are you in?
4. JESUS DID THE WORKS OF HIS FATHER AS LONG AS THERE WAS DAY
God has prepared good works for each of us to do. Are we actively engaged in doing them. Night is coming when no-one will be able do any more.
